What does "Save to Profile" mean - where is it saved to?

I got the above link from an email that sends me chow newsletters.
While reading this, I see a Save to profile with a number - what does this mean to me. How can I access it again from where?

      Thanks so much.

      I always have 'topics' come up into my profile, recent threads;

      but when I have saved this as Topic 57, then when someone responds to that particular topic, even though I've not written anything in it, it will show up under my: Rella's Profile > My Recent Threads, as if I had responded at one time.

      By jove, I think I've got it. Thanks jpr54_1.

        When you use the Save Topics button, the thread will be added to a list that you can find by clicking on your profile, then on Following, then on Saved Topics. That's where you will find it, rather than on My Recent Threads.

          thanx for the correction-i was close but not correct

            This didn't show up for me by following the instructions given. Must be my operating system, as for instance, I cannot post pictures except in Mozilla. But thanks.

              the reason it didn't work was bcz it is a recipe
              i tried and found the way to save it
              go to your profile don't go tofollow but click on recipe
              i tried and saved the moroccan recipe

                I'm glad you kept at it for me -- my appreciation! Yes, there it was in the recipes.

              To the Chowhound Team: I am still having trouble with this. I have "saved topics" from time to time and don't seem to be able to retrieve them with instructions given. I am only "following" one Chowhound poster, otherwise, and the only stuff I seem to be able to retrieve are the threads that the other poster contributed to. Was the "Saved Topics" button modified a few months back? Please update on how I can find my saved topics.

                Murphy's Law... I found what I needed a few miniutes after I posted, so you can disregard. I tried to delete the above post and could not "edit" it out of existance. Thanks for your patience.

                  Hi Florida Hound,

                  Glad you figured this out. We are going to be re-visiting this in the next few months, since we'd like to make our system much clearer. Will keep everyone posted as this progresses.
